My name is Anastasia Sielski (she/her) and I am a bilingual (Spanish/English) final year graduate student at Columbia University's School of Social Work.
Having grown up as a queer, Hispanic New Yorker has allowed me to develop a unique approach to psychotherapy that is social justice informed, trauma-informed, and client-centered.
In my work with individuals and couples, I work to take an LGBTQI+, kink/BDSM affirming, and anti-racist approach. Although my clinical lens is primarily psychodynamic, I incorporate different therapeutic skills, including aspects of CBT (Cognitive Behavior Therapy), DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy), and Motivational Interviewing depending on your needs. In addition to my eclectic therapeutic style, I bring energy, curiosity, and humor to each session so we can both experience the power of the therapeutic relationship.
Everyone’s journey to therapy is different. It can be uncomfortable and challenging, but I am a firm believer that we all have the capacity to change patterns that no longer serve us and that our identities are sources of strength. I hope to create a space where we can safely and creatively explore your authentic self, as well as identify and inspire areas of growth.
I look forward to meeting you so we can get to work!
